A STUDY OF 2 SAMUEL 13:1-22: A CALL FOR EFFECTIVE GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING AMONG THE YOUTHS IN NIGERIA

Topic Description

ABSTRACT
A study of 2 Samuel 13:1-22: A call for effective guidance and counselling among the youths in Nigeria is an attempt to analyze the event that took place in the house of a given king
called David in 2 Samuel 13:1-22 and sees how its lesson could be used to address the current or contemporary problem facing the Nigerian youths in relation to offering guidance and counseling services. In a nutshell, the work focuses on the exegetical analysis and hermeneutical
application of 2 Samuel 13:1-22. The researcher used the available biblical materials in the libraries and journals to source his data. The episode in 2 Samuel 13:1-22 shows a gap in parent-child relationship, influence of bad company and the consequences to both the victims and the society in general.
Today, it is also observed that such gap still exists and getting wider. Consequently, the society is getting more corrupt. Every day the society experiences more increase in the rate of moral decadence among the youths. The study calls for responses from every nook and cranny to salvage our young
ones from mass destruction resulting from lack of attention to their developmental experiences. In other words, parents, governments and religious bodies are called to offer help in
provision of guidance and counselling services to the youths in Nigeria. It is probable that this would go a long way to decreasing growth rate of social vices and raise the moral standard of our nation, Nigeria.
